I know it’s been a long while since I published the first installment of ‘Meccha Oishii Japanese Candy Adventures’ but every step of creating these posts is very time consuming so I have been subconsciously putting off creating Part 2, alas it is now complete so please enjoy. Popin’ Cookin’ – Curry Set (Meccha Oishii Japanese Candy Adventures: Part 2)
In this kit we shall be making karē raisu カレーライス (curry rice) and accompanying Korokke コロッケ (croquettes) a popular dish in Japan. Keep in mind like the last entry where I made gyoza and ramen, similarly these tiny dishes are actually savoury.
First things first take your various bowls and cut them up accordingly, this will make things easier. If you like you can also trim around the round serving bowl to make it a tad more aesthetically pleasing.
First we will be making the rice so grab the blue packet ライス.
Pour the entire contents of the rice packet along with not one but TWO measures of water into the almost rectangular container and mix it until it becomes fluffy.
Once your done transfer your ‘rice’ to the serving bowl, covering 2/3rds of one side as I have done.
Next up were making the Korokke コロッケ so grab the orange pack labeled Poteto ポテト (Potato).
Once again pour the packet into the almost rectangular container along with ONE measure of water and mix until you can roll it into a doughy ball.
Spit the dough in half, transfer to a plate and mold them to whatever takes your fancy. I went with a star and heart, this can be a little tricky to do ebtirely with you fingers, so use the mixing spoon as it is flat.
Once your done, temporarily set them aside.
Take the bag of crispy balls and crush them to dust prior to opening them.
Once again pour the crushed balls into the almost rectangular container.
Then proceed to roll your potato shapes in the crispy coating until they are well covered.
Once again set them aside as they are all done!
For the final step grab the brown packet labeled カレー (curry) and pour it into the almost rectangle container.
Add ONE measure of water to the powder and mix thoroughly until it is a thick brown paste.
Transfer your finished curry to the serving bowl in the empty third alongside your rice and your done!
There you have it the finished dish カレーライス コロッケ セット(curry rice and croquette set meal) !
